As a multi-year member of The Cornell Engineer magazine, I received The Pi Delta Epsilon award as "The Outstanding Journalist of the Year" in 1959.  If I recall correctly, this was the first time in decades that an Engineer received that award.

As a member of the Executive Board of the Cornell Society of Engineers in 1960 (Dean Hollister's last year), I was responsible for the return of the 4-year Bachelor's Degree in Engineering with the 5th year being entitled to a Master's Degree in Engineering.

You may wish to read my article in the 1965 Centennial Issue of The Cornell Engineer on "A History of The Cornell Society of Engineers".

I was responsible for a resurrection of The Cornell Club of Southern California during my 3-year tenure as President.  We won the award for three straight years as The Cornell Club in the nation, from 1978 to 1980.

 I then proceeded to do the same as President for The Ivy League Association of Southern California.  I brought in the "7 Sister Colleges" (e:g: Smith, Vassar,etc.).....we held events which, on average, drew as many as 5,000 local alumni from the 8 Ivies and 7 Sisters.

Dear Madam or Sir,

as a Cornell MSE alumni (graduate student, 1999, Prof. Ed Kramer group) I would like to share the following information with you. I hope you find it interesting  for the Alumin Notes or Alumni Spotlights.

Every year, the US journal Foreign Policy compiles a list of the top 100 minds in the world – people who have had a major impact on our world and society in the year in question. Together with my colleagues Artur Braun, Florent Boudoire and Rita Toth from EMPA and Edwin Constable from the University of Basel, I was named on the list of100 Leading Global Thinkers 2014 in the innovation category in recognition of our research project on moth-eye solar cells for the direct conversion of sunlight into hydrogen. The awards ceremony took place in Washington D.C. on November 17, 2014.
